Do Beauty Salons Need Insurance?

Are you a beauty enthusiast who is planning to start your own salon business? That’s great! It’s always a good thing to make money out of something that you are passionate about. If making people look and feel beautiful is your passion, then you are on the right page. Before starting your own salon business, you need to know the things that you need to do or get as a budding business owner.

You will express your personality and passion through your beauty salon. Being a beauty salon owner is a dream come true for you. Your salon is your dream, and you need to protect it no matter what. So what should you do? Be a smart and responsible business owner and get insurance for your salon. A salon insurance can protect your business from losses due to damage, fire, or even theft. It can also help with employee illness or injury and loss of business income. In addition to that, a salon insurance can protect against liability claims filed against your business.

What should be included in your salon insurance?

Here are the four main things that you should look for when it comes to getting an insurance. Your salon insurance should include:

  • protection against financial loss
  • protection for your property
  • protection against legal actions or claims
  • protection for your employees

How much does a salon insurance cost?

Salon insurance cost varies depending on several factors, such as:

  • the annual turnover
  • claims history
  • number of trading years
  • operation and staff size
  • level of salon insurance cover you need
  • additional extras you require

Is it possible to lower the cost of a salon insurance?

As previously mentioned, salon insurance cost varies depending on several factors. You have control over some factors, such as:

  • Annual – if you can’t afford to pay annually, brokers may agree to a monthly or quarterly payment scheme.
  • Excess – this is the amount you are liable for when it comes to any claim that you need to file against your salon insurance policy. Most brokers are in favor of a higher excess amount and it might lead to a lower annual premium.
  • Comparison – take your time to compare multiple salon insurance quotes. Choose one that includes everything that you need and is perfect for your budget.
  • Security – a secure salon location might also lead to a lower annual premium.

What are the kinds of insurance available for the beauty industry?

In addition to salon insurance, there are other kinds of insurance available for people who are in the beauty industry just like the following:

  • face painter insurance
  • makeup artist insurance
  • mobile beauty therapist insurance
  • nail tech insurance
  • tattoo artist insurance

Always make sure inquire with legitimate brokers and take time to compare salon, face painter, makeup artist, mobile beauty therapist, nail tech, or tattoo artists insurance quotes before making a deal. Do not choose an insurance just because it’s cheaper than the others. Consider what inclusions will be good for your business.

3 Top Waxing Places in Manila You Should Check Out

Summer 2019 has officially started! Is your body summer-ready? Have you just decided to try out waxing for the first time? Good decision. However, before taking a plunge, you should first take the time to find out the best waxing salon that is right for you and your needs.

Waxing is indeed an intimate experience and not everyone is considering to give it a go. Also, it is not easy to trust someone you have just met to pour hot liquid (yes, it could be a little painful) to any part of your body that needs hair removal. These are the reasons why you need to find out the best salons that provide this service. You need to know which ones can give you the results you desire.

Waxing in the Philippines

More and more Filipinos become open to the idea of waxing. It is because they like the idea of a faster and more convenient way of removing unwanted hair.

Waxing is a good alternative to shaving. In fact, it is much better than shaving. Result lasts much longer because hair is being pulled from the roots. There will be no skin discoloration or cuts that could leave scars. Waxing also leaves the skin smoother and free from itch. Who doesn’t want that?

Top 3 Waxing Salons

Since waxing is gaining popularity in the Philippines, more and more salons offer it nowadays. You don’t need to go to each salon just to determine which is the best. In this article, I’ve listed three of the most loved and popular waxing salons in the country. Check them out below.

#1 Pink Parlour (As low as Php150!)

Pink Parlour has been providing hair removal services since 2005.
They use top waxing brands from Australia and their painless waxing process only lasts 20 minutes!

You can enjoy Pink Parlour’s services even outside the country. They are also popular in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore! This Singapore-based company has over 80,000 customers and counting. They get over 6,000 bookings per month. If you are looking to get a painless Brazilian wax from hair removal specialists who care, they are the place to go! Aside from that, they offer other perks that are not being offered by any other waxing salons in the country.

Why Pink Parlour is my #1 Choice

Of course, there are several reasons that make Pink Parlour the #1 choice when it comes to waxing. Here they are:

  • Pink Parlour’s Php700 hard waxing service is less painful than sugaring!
  • Affordable waxing rates
  • Caring professionals
  • Extensive warranties (up to 10 days!)
  • High quality products (imported from Australia)
  • Loyalty rewards via Pink Points
  • Quick and painless waxing
  • They have their own showers
  • Packages and plans are available across the region (this perk is unique to Pink Parlour!)

Waxing rates (as of the writing of this article):

Other services provided: foot reflex, long-term hair removal, manicure, pedicure, sunless spray tan, and whitening servicesLocal branches: The Rise (opening July 2019), Robinsons Galleria, SM North Edsa, A. Venue Mall, and Eastwood Mall

#2 Barenaked (around Php550)

Barenaked’s Brazilian Wax service costs around Php550. This salon is popular for the waxing technique that they use, which is called “sugaring.” Sugaring is known as the most natural way of removing hair, so it could be painful. Their sugaring method (made with lemon, sugar, and water) also leaves the skin smoother and without dead skin cells.

Other services: Brow and body waxing

Local branch: Unit 106 Xanland Place, 323 Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City

#3 Beeswax (around Php740)

Do you love bees? Beeswax is a small, simple, and cozy salon. They also feature aesthetically pleasing honeycomb interior design. They use organic and non-toxic products, but they don’t have their own bathroom.

Local branch: B/L Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City.

Simple and Easy Ways to Get Thicker Hair

I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t want to have thick, voluminous hair. If you have thin hair, don’t worry because there’s still hope for you. In this article, we will discuss simple and easy ways to make your hair thicker than ever without breaking your bank.

Thinning hair is usually caused by genetics, aging, illness, poor nutrition, illness, and overuse or improper use of commercial hair products. Whatever the cause of your thinning hair is, you can still do something to rescue it.

It is true that you cannot change the texture of your hair follicles. However, there are several ways to make your natural hair appear thicker and reduce hair loss and breakage. Here are some ways to get thicker hair by using products or items that you already use on a daily basis.

Aloe gel

Aloe Vera is known for its ability to improve the skin, scalp, and hair. Apply aloe gel to your hair and scalp and watch how it strengthen and thicken your hair over time.

Avocado

Avocados are rich in Vitamin E, which is used in a lot of moisturizers today. Combine an avocado with olive oil and apply the mixture to your hair and scalp. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash thoroughly with mild shampoo and warm water.

Castor Oil

Just like avocado, castor oil is also rich in Vitamin E that is known for promoting better hair health. Using castor oil doesn’t require any preparation and it’s easy to apply as well.

Eggs

We all know that eggs are rich in protein, which is essential in keeping the hair strong and thick. Getting egg treatment on a regular basis will not only strengthen your natural hair but also thicken it. Just beat 1 or 2 eggs together and apply to your damp hair and scalp. Leave it for about 30 minutes and wash thoroughly with mild shampoo and warm water.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is known for having nutrients that are essential for hair health (and also overall health). With its Omega 3 acid content, it can help you get softer and thicker hair as well as healthier scalp.

Oranges

Oranges contain Vitamin C, acid, and pectin that promote thicker and healthier hair. Make an orange puree and massage it to your hair and scalp. It’s that easy!

Want quicker results?

If you are a busy person and you don’t have time to wait to get the result you want, that’s okay. There is still a way for you to get thick, voluminous hair that is much quicker than what I’ve mentioned above. Hairaze is a revolutionary natural hair and scalp treatment made for both men and women suffering from thinning hair and hair loss. Here are some reasons why it’s worth a try:

  • It is rich in anti-oxidants as well as vitamins and minerals
  • It has anti-fungal and soothing effects on scalp
  • It protects hair and scalp against environmental degradation
  • It leaves hair soft and not oily

Hairaze is free from alcohol, sulfate, and parabens.

[JOLSE] SAAT INSIGHT ALL DAY FIXER CUSHION 14.5g Review

Loading image... Loading image... Loading image... Loading image... Loading image... Loading image...

** This item was kindly sent to me by jolse.com in exchange for my honest review.

Cushions, cushions, cushions. Oh, how I love buying and collecting them! I always get excited every time I get a new cushion foundation or BB cream. Who doesn’t?

This SAAT INSIGHT ALL DAY FIXER CUSHION is the newest addition to my collection and I am loving it so far. Just like most of the cushions that I have, this one is made in South Korea.

Packaging

First, let’s talk about the packaging. It came in a box that looks pretty and classy. It has a marble design with pink, white, and black color combination. Check out the first 2 images above to see how pretty it is!

The cushion case is simple yet luxurious. I love how elegant the pastel pink and silver combination looks. It doesn’t look and feel cheap at all. It’s quite sturdy and it looks like I can reuse the case once the product is used up. I am not sure if cushion foundations from other brands could fit in it, though.

Unlike other cushion sponges that I used before, SAAT INSIGHT ALL DAY FIXER CUSHION’s sponge is pink. I love how color-coordinated everything in this cushion is! The sponge is easy to use.

Product

Now, let’s talk about the product itself. When I first applied it on my face, I noticed that it made my skin look bright and dewy, and I felt some stickiness. It has a slight flowery scent, but not bothering.

If you look at the fifth photo above, you’ll think that the shade is quite dark. However, when I applied the product on my skin, the shade looked too light for my skin tone (I usually get shade #23 when buying cushion foundations). I also noticed that it made my face look a little gray. The coverage is light to medium and it’s buildable. If you look at the sixth photo above (no filter!), you’ll see that my blemishes are still visible. I think it’s perfect for those who have good skin condition and prefer sheer coverage.

What I really liked about this cushion is how moisturizing it is. It made my skin look and feel plump and hydrated. I think it’s because it contains tone up essence and anti-wrinkle ingredients. SPF 50+ is also a plus! It’s summer here in the Philippines right now and I need to protect my skin from the harmful sun rays.

I have oily skin so it made my face look really dewy. I will still use this but I think I’ll put a setting powder on top of it.

This product claims to bring back moisture, heal, and brighten the skin. I think it does all of that, but I wish there are other shades to choose from. Unfortunately, this item only comes in 1 shade.

Price

It’s original price is $30.55, but as of the writing of this post, it only costs $25.97! Take advantage of the sale!

Summary

All in all, I recommend this cushion for people who have fair, dry skin and for those who prefer sheer coverage. If you like makeup with skin care benefits, this one’s worth a try!

3 Fantastic Skin Treatments You Need To Try In 2018

2018 is the year of self-care and whilst many of us take up healthy eating, exercise and sleeping better, we must not forget about our skin. And whilst there are plenty of skin treatments out there, knowing the best ones can be tricky!

With this in mind, we’ve picked three fantastic skin treatments you need to try in 2018. From facials to micro botox, these treatments are set to be some of the biggest skin trends of 2018, with some celebrities already paving the way. Read ahead to find out the ones you need to try this year…

Hydrafacials

Hydrafacials are a great skin treatment to have, especially if you’ve never had any kind of treatment before.The facial is used to treat and diminish a number of skin issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, dry or patchy skin, large and congested pores, minor scars, brown spots, improve acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation, superficial age spots, oily skin, extract blackheads and whiteheads whilst achieving a uniform complexion and glowing skin.

Micro-Botox aka Baby Botox

Getting botox for the first time can be daunting, and as many people are worried about getting too much or look emotionless, micro botox may well be the answer. A popular choice by many celebrities, micro botox is a more delicate method than regular botox and aims to give a more natural, fresh look. It works to decrease pore size, smooth skin and decrease oil production, with more people also using it in their armpits and palms to reduce sweating. The results last around two months and is a great way to try out the procedure before getting the full botox treatment.

Skin Tightening

Although baby botox is on the rise, there are a lot of people stepping away from the knife and the injections, taking up less invasive ways of treating the skin. Radiofrequency skin tightening treatment is a pain-free, and relaxing treatment to tighten and lift the face and neck, including the delicate eye area. It helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lax skin and sagging jowls. This treatment is rapidly becoming established by celebrities in as the must-have face and body contouring treatment. There is no pain, no downtime, and immediate results. What more could you want?

Unlike past years, 2018 is already seeing people step away from the cosmetic surgery look, opting for less obvious procedures and searching for a more natural look. As well as treatments, it’s key to look after your skin day to day, by using moisturisers tailored to your skin type, avoiding sun damage and drinking lots of water. All things that do wonders for your skin! When undergoing any treatment it’s important to consult your doctor first, as they know best and can guide you to what treatments will work for you. It’s also vital to make sure the nurse or beauty therapist performing the treatment is qualified to do so.

Which Type of Face Mask is Right for You?

Women, and even men, are raving about face masks nowadays. Before adding one to your skin care routine, you need to know which type of face mask is best for you.

There are three common types of face masks – clay, cream, and sheet masks. Each type has a different purpose. For most people, choosing the right face mask could be confusing. According to this article, clay, cream, and sheet masks can make one’s skin properly nourished and hydrated as long as the person is aware of his or her skin profile. As long as you know the type and needs of your skin, you will be able to find the right skin care products for you.

Clay Masks

Clay masks are known for containing lots of minerals that are powerful in removing dead skin and dirt. In other words, this type of face mask works as a mild exfoliant. Clay masks are perfect for those who are prone to acne. They prevent grease and break outs, so they can also be considered as acne fighters or sebum reducers. If you have oily skin and you want to clear up your pores, a clay mask is perfect for you!

Cream Masks

Cream masks are often used to firm and repair the skin. Some cream masks double as night creams.

If you are looking for a moisturizing mask that can reduce the inflammation of your skin, look for a cream mask that contains Shea Butter. Shea Butter also contains Vitamin A which helps in minimizing wrinkles and blemishes. Aside from Shea Butter, collagen is also a good ingredient to check out for. It has anti-aging properties and helps in keeping the elasticity of skin.

Sheet Masks

Among the three types of face masks, sheet masks are probably the easiest to use. Sheet masks come as pre-cut pieces of non-woven fabric or cotton that are soaked in packets that contain nutrients for your skin. This type of mask is known for keeping the skin soft and moisturized. Sheet masks can also help tighten pores and calm down acne-prone skin.

These masks are perfect for people who are always on the go. You just need to put it on for a few minutes and spread the rest of the essences on your jawline and neck. That’s it! You don’t need to rinse anything once you are done.

If you are always busy, you can still give your skin a hydrating treat by using a sheet mask that contains hyaluronic acid.

It is always important to know which skin care products work best for you. According to everydayhealth.com, the three powerful ingredients that you should look for when shopping for skin care products are antioxidants, retinoids, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). Antioxidants, like Vitamin C, help brighten the skin. Retinoids are responsible in increasing cell turnover and stimulating collagen renewal, so it is also important to include them in your routine. Alpha Hydroxy Acid exfoliators will help in removing the top layer of your dead skin cells.

SPF should be used every single day – no matter what the season. Yes, SPF is a must even during chilly or rainy days. Sun damage could cause not only wrinkles but also skin cancer. It is recommended to use an SPF 30 (at least). Some SPFs provide multiple benefits because they contain vitamins and ingredients that help moisturize the skin.

Avoid Heavy Foundation

If you want to look much younger than your age, you need to take it easy on your foundation. As much as possible, avoid powder-based foundation and use moisturizing foundation or a tinted-moisturizer instead. It is also good to add a primer to your makeup routine because it could minimize your dark circles, fill in your lines and pores, make your makeup last longer, and help in applying your foundation smoothly.

Do you love to wear makeup? Here’s an extra tip for you. Avoid bold and bright eye shadows or any product that contain glitter or shimmer. Why? Glittery and shimmery makeup products will make your wrinkles look more noticeable.

Moisturize
